Swansea winger Nathan Dyer is set for further scans on Monday as the Welsh side await news of his ankle injury, BBC Sport reported December 16th. The article, “Swansea wait for news on winger Nathan Dyer's ankle injury,” commented that initial scans showed no obvious break to the ankle that Dyer injured in the 1-1 draw at Norwich, when his ankle gave way while trying to withstand a Sebastien Bassong tackle. Swansea boss Michael Laudrup commented, ‘We have to wait a couple of days for an X-ray and a scan, and we all cross our fingers to hope it's not that bad.’ (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/25391722)

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine advised readers on coping with life after a serious injury. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘A serious accident can happen in the blink of an eye and many accident victims are often left with a long-term injury that unexpectedly impacts their quality of life. Dealing with a sudden life-altering injury involves much more than physical pain. The inability to function in a familiar manner can create depression in the injury victim and family alike, as well as create living complications no one ever anticipated. These social impairments of lifestyle and mobility are as contributory to dealing with an injury situation as much as physical damage.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/12/advice-coping-life-altering-injury/#sthash.OLE7gnMe.dpuf)

Yourwellness Magazine outlined three basic steps that can help the healing process:

1. Budget Assessment: Expenses are often added by the injury treatment and necessities and adjustments must be made.

2. Follow Medical Recommendations: Physical therapy is a prime example of treatment that injured victims may want to avoid. Regardless of difficulty, this is still very important for lifestyle improvement and legal claim protection.

3. Hire an Attorney Immediately: Depending on the victim’s employment situation, they may also be eligible for worker’s compensation or disability insurance from their employer. In addition, there may be negligence claims that can be filed in many instances, such as an automobile accident.
